Just bought the canon Rebel and can't seem to find the right screen to get the LCD screen to show what I am taking a picture of. I can look through the little viewfinder, but can't get it to show on the screen until after I review it after I take the picture.

Sony cyber-shot DSC-W210. On/off button does not work, but I can turn it on using the play button. Press the play button again to get to picture taking mode, but it will not take pictures. Then I get the E:91:01 error message that so many people seem to be talking about. I can remove this message by 'initialising' through the menu, but can't take pictures. I've also tried removing the battery, leaving for a while, then replacing, but to no avail. People seem to think this is a software prob

I have a Canon A720IS 8.0 meg camera that I'm having problems with. I have tried several SC cards; 1 gig and 8 gig. Same results. The pictures and video look fine on the LCD, but when I download to the Canon program, or any other program I have: Picasso, Microsoft, etc. I get the same weird results. Some pictures are okay, however, most are "redone". The result is that some of the picture is okay, but some is realigned. They are always straight lined corrections. The color will be lighter or dar

The camera was working fine. I imported the pictures to Picassa succesfully and turned the camera off. I then went to take new pictures and all I get is a black LCD screen and when I load into Picassa the pictures are all black. The camera seems to work well, zoom, flash menu all seem normal except there is no picture. Can it be fixed and would it be cost effective?
The CCD is bad or the Iris is shut stuck. If it's the Iris just stuck, it might just have moisture - leave the camera in a dry place for a day. If it's the CCD - pretty much "kiss-it-good-bye". To replace the CCD is expensive - get a new camera. ... Digital Cameras
Blurry viewfinder While the viewfinder has always been a little blurry, I've had a recent problem with it being so blurry you couldn't even use it take a picture. Then after swtiching to the LCD viewfinder to shoot from, I see a large yellowish black line on the left side of it, doesn't seem to affect the pictures as I can view them afterwards ....am I going to have a major repair>
As mentioned, might be a defective CCD imager. You may be in luck. Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. Please check the following two links for more info:\015\012http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/ca ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I bought the camera in the UK but I have since moved to Portugal and have only now had a chance to get the new camera out. This, I know, is my fault. But, nevertheless, I can't get it to work - the LCD monitor remains black when shooting whatever I do. It will take pictures via the optical viewfinder okay but I cannot get the screen to show. It works to display the settings etc but not for taking pictures so that when I press the display button it alternates between the photo settings (which
Canon models oddly do not support images on the LCD in every picture mode. Since the LCD works for settings, my guess is its in the wrong mode for the live view and its is not an issue with the camera's LCD.\015\012\015\012Here is a link to the ... Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera
Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,

Viewfinder focus I am unable to properly focus using the viewfinder and see a clear focused picture even with trying to use the opitcal zoom. However, I have no problem using the lcd and adjusting the optical zoom to get a clear picture. is there something wrong with the lense or have i inadvertently set a function on the camera.

I received a canon powershot as a gift last year and am just now really starting to use it. The pictures seem fine, but the it seems like I am frequently requested to put in the date and time (i.e. about every 2nd or 3rd time I turn the camera on). Is there somethign I can do to get the camera to retain the date and time? It is sort of annoying that I can't turn it on and take a picture quickly since it won't let me take one until I have entered the date and time. Also, I don't think it is stamp

LCD White-out I have had this Fuji FinePix A350 since Christmas 2006. This August while on vacation and taking quite a few pictures with a new 1GB XD card, the LCD screen would come on with a blank white screen as the camera was turned on. I continued to take photos using the optical viewfinder to frame my pictures, hoping that it was still working even if I couldn't view them. Fortunately, all the photos did come out fine even though some were totally out of focus (focusing was sometimes a prob

Camera repair The LCD display is white with red lines going through it. Even the viewfinder does the same thing -- white. When I hit the view button, the same thing sometimes. It seems to do worse outside. You can faintly see the pictures I took in the LCD display. Now the LCD display is totally black. What's wrong. The menu display still works. What can I do?

Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks

My Cannon Powershot A95 failed while I was overseas. The image in the viewfinder looked ok but the resulting photos tend heavily toward blues and magentas but worst of all they are vertically 'smeared'. The effect is similar to what you would get if you wet a fresh watercolour picture and held it up. Everything kind of runs down the page. This is a great loss to me as I use it for photographing models owing to the tilting viewfinder feature. The modern cameras are very hard to use close to th

I have an Olympus D-460 Zoom 1.3 megapixel which I've had about a year. I bought it used and it was working fine up until about a week ago.
